Here is the Council’s response to our Freedom of Information request:
Q: Do you allow stall holders at your markets to sell real fur? (including small items such as knitted hats with fur bobbles, or key rings with fur trims etc.
A: Whilst there is no specific restriction in our request form for a market pitch we do not have traders who sell items like this. Our regular traders only trade in fruit & veg; flowers and plants; fish and furniture.
The Council allows the sale of fur. They have asked to see our Fur Free Markets policy to consider.
Real fur is cruel and unnecessary. Please urge the Council to ban the sale of real fur on their markets and adopt the official Fur Free Markets policy by contacting Kevin Martin, Town Clerk, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
